For many, Earl Grey is the afternoon tea of choice, enticingly light and infused with bergamot to give it the exotic flavour and aroma that we all love.
Earl Grey is a lightly perfumed, classic blend of quality Indian and China teas and is a quintessentially English tea. It takes its name from the 1830s English Prime Minister, Charles Grey, although the true origin of the tea is uncertain. A luxurious afternoon tea, it was originally drunk almost exclusively by aristocrats, lightly brewed and usually without milk.
Nowadays there are few people who haven't savoured the aromatic taste of a good cup of Earl Grey. Whittard's blend is outstanding with just the right balance of bergamot. It is a favourite afternoon tea, drunk with or without milk.

Brew a Perfect Cup
Ideally warm the pot first with a splash of hot water. Use one teaspoon (around 2g) per cup and always use freshly drawn and boiled water. Allow to brew for 3-5 minutes according to taste. Can be drunk with or without milk.
Perfectly okay tea, in a lovely tin.
Unfortunately Tea not as advertised!
I like my Earl grey quite strong, the 3% Bergamot stated is not what I received. Upon checking hte ingredients list on the tin, this tea has only 2% Bergamot and at least to my taste is too weak and non descript.
I have had Whittards Earl Grey several times in the past and their 3% Bergamot tea was always one of my favourites.
Annoyingly if the ingredients quoted on the website were up to date, I would not ahve wasted my time ordering this item.
A lovely Earl Grey - A lovely taste that wont dissapoint you. A classicer that's beeing drunk all day at my home.
Earl Grey is my all time favourite tea, but finding a good quality tea loose is not easy. This is beyond perfect, and reminds me of days gone by when we would all drink Earl Grey with high tea. A tradition almost lost these days, but Whittard's Earl grey brought back lovely memories. A super buy, and the caddy is so sweet and would love lovely with any kitchen decor.
